notes"The AH-1/AH-1A Chinese 155mm Towed Artillery is a variant of the PLL-01 Chinese 155mm Towed Artillery that is equipped with a APU. The APU provides limited self-propulsion to move into or out of the firing position and enables powered deployment in the firing position. The difference between the AH1 and the AH1A is a conventional screw breechblock on the AH1 and a laterally sliding wedge breech block on the AH1A."
